Graduate Teaching Community

Graduate Students

Learning communities promote engaged conversations about student learning and instructional effectiveness by allowing participants to exchange ideas and explore strategies in an open and supportive environment. 

Graduate Teaching Community (GTC)

CEE’s Graduate Teaching Community is a collaborative, interdisciplinary group of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars who come together on a quarterly basis to explore effective teaching practices. Together with peers, you explore relevant issues around learning and teaching in a supportive environment, freely discussing your ideas about teaching in ways that encourage reflection and enhance teaching practice. Past GTCs have featured a variety of high-interest topics in learning and teaching, such as implementing strategies that promote active learning, encouraging participation in large classes, utilizing reflective teaching practices, and promoting effective instructor-TA interactions.  Participants have the opportunity to receive a certificate as a result of participating in the GTC for at least one full quarter.
